Within the Pueblos of New Mexico, the creation of pottery has remained a vital art with traditions being passed on for many generations. Each Pueblo has created a unique and distinctive style, which has persisted for hundreds of years.
In prehistory, beautiful pieces had high trade value, were commonly used in daily life, and the finest contemporary pieces command prices appropriate to fine art of any type. Yet despite its history and the skill of its artists, pottery remains surprisingly easy to collect.
This book introduces the art from its beginnings to the present and displays examples that describe how America's first important art form grew into one of the world's most accessible treasure.
